    I have been working at Harvard University full-time

    Pros

    European work schedule (35 hour weeks, 20 days vacation, Christmas-New Year's off, 3 personal days, 12 sick days).

    Cons

    Super decentralized, which can result in everything being siloed off into different departments not talking to each other.

    Interview

    I met with dean, colleagues, senior management; the process in my case did not take long because I already knew many of the parties, but later as a manager I found the hiting process took a very long time in many cases.
